The most valuable car isn't always the most expensive one. In the modern automotive market, many consumers are currently trying to figure out if they can afford a luxury vehicle or, more importantly, if they need one at all. You've probably heard people say things like, "Sure, a run-of-the-mill car is fine, but there's just something about luxury!"
Well, from your friends at Toyota of Decatur, the only thing that separates luxury vehicles from the rest of the pack is an unnecessary and often ridiculous markup in price. If anyone says that you 'settled' for a Toyota SUV, then they clearly haven't seen our 2018 Toyota Sequoia vs 2018 INFINITI QX80 comparison. Take an in-depth look at the chart above.
Key Differences – Toyota Sequoia vs INFINITI QX80
The biggest difference between these two SUVs is, of course, the price tag. More specifically, they are separated by a gap of over $16,000. So, if the 2018 Sequoia costs over $16,000 less, does that make it significantly worse than the INFINITI QX80? No, absolutely not. As a matter of fact, the Sequoia is undisputedly the much better value of the two.
While the 2018 INFINITI QX80 is able to match most of the standard features and technology systems in the 2018 Toyota Sequoia, it can't match all of them. Adaptive Cruise Control, for example, comes standard in every 2018 Sequoia. Even with its much bigger price tag, the INFINITI QX80 doesn't deliver this feature as standard; you'd have to pay even more for it.
If you need as many seats as you can get, then you need a Sequoia. The INFINITI QX80 offers seven seats, but the Toyota Sequoia adds another, which makes a grand total of eight. Not only does the Sequoia have a larger seating capacity, it also has a larger cargo capacity! With 2.3 additional cubic feet of cargo space, the 2018 Toyota Sequoia can fit more luggage and gear, plus another friend or family member in that eighth seat.
With a smoother driving experience, more seating and cargo capacity, and a price tag that's over $16,000 more affordable, many SUV shoppers agree that the 2018 Toyota Sequoia vs 2018 INFINITI QX80 comparison ends in a colossal win for Toyota.
